Ring’s latest Video Doorbell makes charging easier with a swappable battery

Latest

Ring continues to make minor improvements to its popular line of smart video doorbells. Last year was the Video Doorbell Pro, which added 1080p video and configurable motion-detection zones, but didn’t run on battery power. The new Video Doorbell 2 has 1080p and motion zones, but returns to Ring’s easy-to-install roots with a rechargeable battery.

In fact, you can finally swap out the doorbell’s battery, so if you have two batteries in rotation, you can keep your doorbell online 24/7 without bothering to wire it up to power.

The Video Doorbell 2 also brings the price back down to $199 (compared to $250 for the Pro), and includes features like swappable faceplates (black and white are included). Live video, two-way audio, and mobile alerts are obviously all here. A cloud-based video-recording plan is still an extra monthly expense after the initial 30-day trial.

Video Doorbell 2 is available now.
